How do I create a new site link?

A. After you create sites of IP subnets, you must link the sites together. You can add new sites to the default IP site link DEFAULTIPSITELINK as you create the sites, or you can select another existing site link. You can also create a new site link.

  1. Start the Active Directory Sites and Services MMC snap-in. (Select Programs, Administrative Tools, Active Directory Sites and Services from the Start menu.)
  2. Expand the Sites branch.
  3. Expand the Inter-Site Transports branch.
  4. Right-click the protocol for the type of site link you want to create (i.e., IP or SMTP), and select New Site Link.
  5. Enter a name for the link, and select the sites that you want to be part of the link, as the Screen shows.
